It's Almost Hallowe'en!

Hallows'Eve is almost upon us, and with that, all of us at Airsoft Canada just wanted to wish airsofters around the world a safe and happy Hallowe'en.

Just as a safety reminder, it's important for all us to remember and realize how realistic our "toy" guns look, and that there have been many accidental police shootings due to realistic looking prop guns. Halloween costumes are not exempted from such accidental shootings, and care should ALWAYS be exercised with your airsoft guns.

As much as we would love to dress up and use our guns as props, it's always a better idea to use fluorescent and obviously fake gun for our props, rather than to use our airsoft guns.

Ideas used in the past:
  • Cardboard cut outs
  • Fluorescent plastic cap or dart guns (easily found at dollar stores)
  • Nerf guns
  • Super Soakers

Wishing you all safe trick or treating, and enjoy any parties you may attend.

I'm sure no one wants to hear this here, but two years ago on Halloween night I walked several blocks through residential and downtown Yellowknife to a bar wearing a pretty full combat load-out, including ACUs, protec helmet, gear vest, Kabar knife and a black-painted, Walmart springer M4 and holstered sidearm. More than once, RCMP and municipal enforcement drove by, and didn't even slow down... At the bar, they liked they outfit so much they asked me to stand guard with the bouncers at the door.

Of course, this could be just a Yellowknife thing...

I'm sure we're all well-adjusted and aware enough to have not needed this warning and we're all smart and reasonable enough to agree it needed to be said anyway.

Happy Hallowe'en.

This is a little like the don't drink and drive you'll spill your drink routine.

Don't take your expensive AEG's out on Halloween, they could get confiscated.
Yes boys I sell these at the shop. Going quickly




These babies look great and range in price from $10-$22.00.
And make a great Leave behind incase the one night stand requires a second visit.

If you have skills with woodworking or a basic knowledge you can free hand a m4/m16/ak47 or mp5 out of wood with a jigsaw and a
drill... I made an ak47 cut out from 1" thick plywood and spraypainted it black... Worked well as a prop and it's made of wood so police had no problems when I walked past them a couple years ago and actually got a compliment on my ak47 cut
out by an officer
